Students will be able to travel to Ohio’s biggest cities for free with the Undergraduate Student Government’s creation of Buckeye Roadtrip, a busing service which will bring undergraduate students to and from Cincinnati, Cleveland and Toledo. “This was a fun project for us,” Stepp said. “A lot of the things we do in USG are town halls or related to academics, but this was a fun one for everyone.” Stepp said Buckeye Roadtrip is a free service for students as of right now, and the nearly $4,000 tab for the

first set of weekend trips is being paid for by USG. “We’re really glad to finally officially bring this program,” Stepp said. “There was a lot of work put into it over the summer, but I’m glad to have finally gotten it done and we’re excited about it.” The first opportunity for students to use Buckeye Roadtrip will be Veterans’ Day weekend, Stepp said. Buses will leave from the south side of the Ohio Union on Nov. 9 at 5 p.m., and buses will leave for OSU on Nov. 12 at 4 p.m. Stepp said the first booked trip for Veterans’ Day weekend will cost $3,930, which comes from USG’s portion of the student activity fee,

This is definitely one of those programs where we weigh the risks and benefits of expending some of our dollars on this and say the potential benefit for this far outweighs the amount of money we’re going to be spending on this program.

Review of Hollywood Casino

Regardless of political affiliation, many Americans can agree that they don’t want to pay higher taxes. Promising not to raise taxes is a broad, favorable argumentative tool used by candidates during election season to win voters and attempt to alienate their opponent, but one Ohio State professor said it’s not up to them anyway. In a speech to 15,000 on OSU’s campus Tuesday, President Barack Obama used the words “tax,” “taxes” and “taxpayer” 21 times in his roughly 20 minute address according to a transcript from the Office of the White House Press Secretary. In his remarks, Obama criticized Republican presidential candidate Mitt

Romney for his $5 trillion tax cut plan that Obama said “favors the wealthiest Americans” and caters to the “top 1 percent.” However, at a campaign event Wednesday in Mount Vernon, Ohio, Romney promised not to raise any taxes if elected president. “I will not raise taxes on small business, I won’t raise taxes on business, I won’t raise taxes on middle income people — I won’t raise taxes at all on the American people,” Romney told the crowd. Obama told the crowd Romney’s plan to cut the nearly $16 trillion national debt would be impossible if enacted. “Gov. Romney’s tax plan either means blowing up the deficit or raising taxes on middle-class families — one or the other, pick your poison,” he said. In response to his comments about Romney’s plan, Obama said Tuesday the U.S. needs to stop subsidizing tax cuts to oil companies and stop rewarding tax breaks to companies that outsource jobs. Obama has signed off on 18 tax cuts on small businesses over the last four years, and about 160 million American workers are paying a reduced payroll

tax. Middle-class American families have seen tax reductions that average $3,600 over the past four years, according to data from the White House. Obama has urged Congress to extend President George W. Bush-era tax cuts including one for families on their first $250,000 of taxable income. Romney has been calling for a 20 percent reduction in all tax brackets from Bush-era rates. This would reduce the tax rate by 2 percent for those who pay

a bottom-bracket rate and reduce the top-bracket rate by 7 percent. According to Romney’s campaign website, he plans to make across-theboard tax cuts by 20 percent “in marginal rates” and “Eliminate taxes for taxpayers with AGI (adjusted gross income) below $200,000 on interest, dividends and capital gains.”

Halfway through the semester, some Ohio State students are beginning to feel the effects of the longer term and greater stretches between breaks. Unlike many universities on semesters, OSU doesn’t have a fall break, and some students have been questioning why. Students at schools such as the University of Dayton, Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo have a fall break in October. Both the University of Dayton and BGSU were on break last weekend with no class scheduled on Oct. 4 or 5. Some OSU students thought the semester switch would bring a fall break, but they soon found out that wasn’t the case. “That (fall break) is the one thing I was looking forward to,” said Robert Rice, a second-year in

science and technology exploration. “I was a little mad when I realized we didn’t get a fall break at all.” Since a day off classes on Sept. 3 for Labor Day, OSU has held regularly scheduled classes without any days off. The next day students have off from class is Veterans’ Day on Nov. 9. Because of the longer period of classes and different calendar than previous years, Wayne Carlson, dean of undergraduate education, said OSU had to find a way to fit 70 days of classes into the schedule. “We have to fit 70 days of classes from Point A to Point B,” Carlson said. Carlson said that with the addition of a Reading Day, a day set aside by some universities to study for final exams, between the end of regularly scheduled classes and the start of finals week, and the extension during Thanksgiving break, there was no place for a fall break. “Student Life also wanted to

campus Some OSU students inconvenienced by closed Oval during Obama visit liz young Lantern reporter young.1693@osu.edu

A crowd of 15,000 people watches President Barack Obama speak at the Oval Oct.9.

Some students faced an unexpected obstacle on their way to classes and work Tuesday afternoon when the Oval was entirely closed off from public access for President Barack Obama’s visit to campus. “I don’t understand why the whole Oval should be closed. I mean, you can leave a circle, you can use the core area of the Oval maybe, but still leave some surrounding areas open to people who do not want to see the Oval closed,� said Lili Wang, a Ph.D. student in geography who was trying to get into the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library at about 1:45 Tuesday to “do some reading.� Patrick Feeney, a third-year in zoology, felt similarly when he was late to his statistics class. “I don’t think they had to close the whole (Oval) down. They could’ve left some kind of path through,� Feeney said. Obama visited the Oval Tuesday, where he spoke to a crowd of about 15,000 for roughly 20 minutes. Rapper will.i.am performed before his arrival on Ohio State’s campus. It was Obama’s fifth visit to OSU since 2010. At the rally, Obama encouraged young people to register to vote, and his visit coincided with the last day of voter registration in Ohio. The west side of the Oval was blocked off by fences. On the east side, Franklin County and Ohio State Police officers prevented

students and visitors from walking into or even toward the Oval. OSU buses and police mobile command posts operated by the OSU Department of Public Safety also blocked off the roads to prevent cars from coming through. “We also did try to communicate with students ‌ to better understand the best, any road closures or pedestrian closures that would be temporary just for the presidential event,â€? said university spokesman Jim Lynch. University Police was involved in making the security plans for the event, but it did not make the final calls on what security measures would be taken. “It wasn’t our decision (to block off the whole Oval),â€? said OSU Deputy Chief Richard Morman. “It was at the request of the Secret Service and the (Obama) campaign.â€? He added that for high-security events such as the Tuesday rally, there are two perimeters created: inner and outer. The inner perimeter is the area where the actual event takes place and where there are people, while the outer perimeter is a large area surrounding the event where no one is allowed to be so that security can keep a better eye on the inner area. University Police declined to release the number of officers on duty at the event, Morman said, but they were assisted by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the OSU Student Safety Services within the OSU Department of Public Safety. Some students admitted if they had paid

more attention to the notifications OSU sent out before Tuesday, they would have been better prepared for the altered route. “I didn’t really pay attention to the emails that were sent because I thought they pertained more to road traffic than pedestrians or bicyclists so I didn’t really read them,� said Celia Wright, a second-year in exploration. “If I had read them, I would’ve been more prepared for this, but I didn’t, so it’s kind of my fault.� Other students disagreed and thought that there was no good way to prepare. “You can plan a little bit, but you really don’t know the layouts. Obviously they’re not gonna tell you that ahead of time, so that doesn’t interfere with the president any, but it’s just a matter of safety, so I guess it’s just kind of the state of mind we’re in today after 9/11,� said Andrew Metzger, a fifth-year in agricultural engineering. But despite the inconvenience, most students agreed that it was worth it to have Obama on campus. “It’s inconvenient, it would’ve been nice if they could’ve done something else, but I don’t know what they could’ve done,� Wright said.

Conflict of interest policy expands Liz young Lantern reporter young.1693@osu.edu

                                   

The definition of what constitutes a conflict of interest for student employees, faculty and staff working at the university has been expanded as a result of a revised policy from Ohio State’s Office of Human Resources. The “significantly revisedâ€? policy on nepotism and conflict of interest became effective July 1, according to an email to faculty from OSU vice president and chief human resources officer Kathleen McCutcheon. Human Resources announced the updated policy on its website Oct. 3, and McCutheon sent out an email to university employees Oct. 10. Nepotism is defined as “favoritism applied ‌ through authority or influence by someone in a position of power, toward family members or others for whom the employee is legally responsible. Favoritism is shown by giving preferential treatment in any employment action to family members and others,â€? according to the Office of Human Resources’ “Nepotism Policy 1.25.â€? The nepotism policy was changed to expand the definition of family member to include first cousin, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew and corresponding step-relatives. The former policy only named “immediate family membersâ€? as family, according to the email sent to faculty. All current faculty, staff, graduate associates and student employees are required to disclose their position and develop an “alternative arrangement agreementâ€? if they are in a situation of nepotism by Dec. 7, according to McCutheon’s email. The updated policy is intended

2A

to create an atmosphere of more workplace disclosure. “This is to ensure that conflicts of interest/nepotism are properly addressed and that there is no appearance of impropriety in our hiring, evaluation, promotion or salary decisions,â€? said Olga Esquivel-Gonzalez, a law and compliance manager for the Office of Academic Affairs, in an email. The new policy also addresses work university employees complete outside the university and states that “staff must disclose if they are currently engaged in external work that has not been approved in writing by their supervisor or unit,â€? according to the email. The revision was done to keep the policy up to date, Esquivel-Gonzalez said. “In accordance with the university policy process, we solicited feedback on all policies to ensure that they are up to date and clearer with regard to duty to disclose, accountability and responsibilities,â€? Esquivel-Gonzalez said. Faculty and staff were consulted and given the chance to offer feedback, and they have also submitted questions about the process and forms Human Resources released, Esquivel-Gonzalez said. Some students feel that the nepotism policy is important to the way the university operates. “I think generally nepotism policies are helpful,â€? said Deirdre Rosenfeld, a graduate student in higher education and student affairs. “I think nepotism policies protect people who are in more vulnerable jobs and I think that would make OSU a strong employer ‌ Hopefully OSU’s nepotism would make sure that people aren’t punished for being in a relationship and working in similar fields.â€? Other students said that even

though relationships are semi-private information, it’s important for an employer to be aware of them. “I think that’s kind of private, but also I think it does affect the decisions that they will make in some way,� said Haley Willard, a second-year in biology. “But I don’t know, I just feel like they’re

acting on our privacy. I don’t think that’s really any of their business, but I mean, if there’s been really serious situations, I would understand. But I haven’t heard any problems with it.� Some students said the university is intruding on faculty privacy to request disclosure of other places they work. “I have to admit, isn’t there something a little bit creepy about saying, ‘Hey you owe us information about your private life’?� Rosenfeld said. “I guess I would want my boss to confront me about the quality of my work or whether or not I’m meeting expectations instead of limiting my ability to contract outside.� Halie Williams contributed to this article.

My dreams of hitting it big at the brand-new Hollywood Casino on the west side of Columbus were dashed on Monday night during the grand opening, but it didn’t make the experience any less exciting. Drawn in by neon lights, massive television screens and the allure of winning some cash, I entered the casino with a sense of thrill and a little hesitation. Aside from spontaneous poker nights in high school, my gambling experience is minimal, at best. I wanted to try out the variety of table games and slot play provided by the casino, and I was impressed with the assortment. The 475,000-square-foot casino, approved by voter referendum in 2009, has nearly 3,000 slot machines and numerous Vegas-style table games. Variety is king at Hollywood Casino, with four dining options, including a sports bar with television screens in every booth. I arrived to the Hollywood Casino with $97 in my pocket and I was intent

on not spending any more. Those $97 didn’t seem to go as far as I hoped, and with most blackjack table minimums at $25, my wallet started to feel light. I am slightly ashamed to say that I lost $24 in my first 24 minutes — the victim of various slot machines and video poker. I was ecstatic when my slot machine finally came alive with a win, and I instantly cashed out with a voucher for $10.25, which can be conveniently inserted into any other slot or video machine like cash. I faced the most apprehension when finally taking the plunge and sitting down at a blackjack table. Table etiquette was far beyond me and I awkwardly put my cash on the table in exchange for my chips. I was the youngest person at the table by a few decades, but I found the dealers to be helpful and friendly. The clientele on opening night was one of the most diverse groups of people I might have ever seen. It seemed as though every race, age group and income level were represented, and it was easy to get caught

Bus from 1A students back on Monday afternoon, Stepp said. He also said each bus will hold 47 people. Between the three trips, 141 people will be able to take advantage of the program. Stepp said he wants to extend the program in the future. “Based on the amount of outreach we’ve already had about this idea, and how well-received it’s been, we will definitely continue this project,” Stepp said. Stepp also said he would like to add more buses or more cities, depending on how things go for the first trips. No future trips are planned yet, but Stepp said he hopes to see them implemented every weekend in the future. Many students said they thought the trips would be a good thing. “It’s a really cool idea, especially with the price of gas and of traveling these days to be providing the service for students I think is a good use of our money,” said Melissa Rotblatt, a fourth-year in social work. “I feel like it’s a service that probably a lot of students would utilize, and so I think it’s a really cool idea and hopefully it takes off.”

Taxes from 1A “Republicans believe that every American should get to pay lower taxes,” said Drew Stroemple, president of the OSU College Republicans. OSU finance professor Stephen Buser said in an email that despite promises of lowering the national debt and reducing taxes, the candidates’ campaign plans are not enough. “Thus far I have not heard any specific strategies from either candidate that could produce budget cuts at a level needed to have a significant impact on the federal budget issue,” he said. Buser worked with The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation after Obama was elected as part of the transition team to the new administration. Buser said that the candidates can make plans about what they want to do about lowering or raising taxes, but ultimately the decision isn’t up to them. “For better or worse, the issue of taxation is up to Congress,” he said. “A president can express his or her views but does not get even one vote on the matter. I am not aware of any current discussion of this issue by Congress.” Students should be concerned and engaged in political discussions about taxes, Buser said, and should

I am jealous of all my friends who had (days) last week off.”

Casino from 2A up in the enthusiastic atmosphere of wins and losses. In addition to the numerous ways to spend money, the casino did offer a few freebies. Entertainment was provided in the form of a singing group called Swagg, offering up covers of popular songs. Waitresses traversed the casino floor, giving out free coffee, water and soda. My inexperience as a gambler showed,

Others agreed, and said it would save students traveling out of town money. “Instead of kids having their parents come pick them up or them having to spend gas money to go back, they get to have a free trip there and back, so I think it’s a great resource to have instead of just spending gas money or having your parents pick you up for break,” said Jacob Rothermund, a first-year in biology. Although Buckeye Roadtrip is a two-way trip for students, it will be a four-way trip for the bus drivers. Stepp said buses will come back to OSU after dropping students off on Friday, and will return to their respective cities to pick them up Sunday. The time of the trips to each city will be less than three hours, with Cincinnati being the shortest trip at 1 hour and 45 minutes. Stepp said students can withdraw from the sign-up if something comes up, and there will be a waiting list if the spots fill up quickly. USG will also be conducting a survey afterword to make sure the ride was pleasant. Students can fill out the form for Buckeye Roadtrip at buckeyeroadtrip.osu.edu and on USG’s website.

be paying attention to what the candidates are saying about their own or their opponent’s tax plans. “As members of the next generation of taxpayers today’s students will inherit both the best and the worst consequences of current actions or inactions,” he said. “Second, current students might very well find themselves in the front lines of the budget battle.” Romney was last in Columbus Sept. 26, when he visited Westerville South High School in Westerville, Ohio, about 20 minutes north of Columbus. Romney made a stop in Delaware, Ohio, Wednesday and is scheduled to visit Lancaster, Ohio, about 40 minutes from Columbus, on Friday. Centre College in Danville, Ky., will be hosting a vice presidential debate at 8 p.m. Thursday between Vice President Joe Biden and Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan. Romney has not yet visited OSU, but his son Craig Romney was on campus Saturday. Tuesday’s visit to the Oval was Obama’s fifth to OSU in two years. Results of a Wednesday seven-day rolling Gallup poll have Obama in the lead among registered voters with 50 percent, and Romney trailing at 45 percent with less than a month until the Nov. 6 presidential election.

on — and strengthen — the traditions built by Jon Woods, who retired last year.” A tweet sent from OSU President E. Gordon Gee’s twitter account @presidentgee at 4:55 p.m. Wednesday shared his excitement about the hire. “A big ‘O-H!’ for Jon Waters, officially named the Director of our Ohio State Marching Band! Well-deserved, indeed. #TBDBITL,” the tweet said. Waters is an OSU and OSUMB alumnus. Waters was named interim director of OSUMB in September 2011, and has worked with the band since 2000. “Obviously it’s big. It’s huge. Jon Waters being promoted is a huge step for the

longevity of the program,” said Brandon Kimbro, a graduate student in kinesiology and snare drum player. “He’s been a part of the program for like 11 years or so. He’s had an active role in day-to-day life all five years I was in the band. So this just kind of solidifies that the band is going to be as solid, and will only get better than it is now.” Kimbro said he is excited to see where Waters will take the band in the future. “I know that in my time working with him, his whole idea is tradition through innovation. Jon has always been a creative thinker, right on the forefront of great shows and great creativity.”

Kasler said she thinks OSU should institute a fall break because it would help students regain focus and get through the second half of the semester. Ashley Forsythe, a second-year in accounting, agreed. “A break would help students catch up on their sleep and give them a time to relax,” Forsythe said. Forsythe said her grades have suffered as a result of the extra classes. “My grades have gone down since last year,” Forsythe said. “I just have so

much going on at once, and it’s getting too overwhelming.” Thanksgiving Break was extended by a day, giving OSU students the Wednesday before Thanksgiving off. Also, regularly scheduled classes end Dec. 4, and finals are from Dec. 6-12. Students are given the extra day to study for finals. “I am happy that we get the Wednesday before Thanksgiving off,” Rice said. “Nobody has classes after the Mirror Lake jump now, and with the Michigan game on Saturday, it gives us a little extra break.”

and I was at a clear disadvantage in the glitzy casino. The pure charisma of the casino is complemented with ornate decorations, bright lights and no clocks in sight. The overwhelming nature of the casino seemed designed to keep me gambling, with no sense of time to reel me in or windows to the outside world. The importance of having a self-imposed limit when patronizing the new casino is essential. As I sat down at a specific machine

or table, I prevented further spending by setting dollar limits each time. If you lack self-discipline, stay away from the Hollywood Casino. I got in my car with $63 less than when I had entered the building, but thankfully with most of my pride intact. My experience on Monday night was both captivating and financially disappointing, but I am sure that the next time I step through those casino doors, I will be far more prepared.

One band is bringing its own take on Queen’s theatrical-style music to Columbus this weekend. “I think we sound sort of like a louder version of Queen,” said Max Bemis, frontman of Los Angelesbased band Say Anything. “It’s chaotic, but in a good way.” Say Anything is scheduled to perform Sunday at Newport Music Hall alongside bands Murder By Death, The Sidekicks and Tallhart. Doors open at 6 p.m. The six-piece indie punk band has had nine lineup changes since it first formed in 2000. Lead vocalist and guitarist Bemis and drummer Coby Linder are the band’s only original members. Say Anything is touring in support of its latest album “Anarchy, My Dear,” released March 13, which Bemis said is more confident than the band’s previous albums. “I think this one is a little more selfassured, being that I wrote it coming from a more confident place,” he said. For Bemis, the record is all about the power of anarchy as a positive force, and one song in particular demonstrates that well. “I like the first song, ‘Burn a Miracle,’” Bemis said. “I just think it sums up everything on the record.” Bemis said the band had specific goals for its fourth studio album and feels they have been met. “The reaction has been great.

Bemis said that while he can’t remember the last time the band played in Ohio, the band is excited to be back promoting its new album. “We do play in Ohio quite a bit, but I don’t remember the last time we were there,” he said. “(But) I always have a good experience. I just hope people enjoy themselves.”

Mike Hunter, promotions manager at PromoWest Productions, said it had indeed been a while since the band had played in Columbus and the fans seem to be excited about Say Anything coming back.

Let’s get two things straight: Abby Lee Miller didn’t become a successful dance choreographer by being nice, and nobody gets between a lioness and her cubs, err I MISTY TULL mean, a dance tull.7@osu.edu mom and her child. “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,” which premiered Tuesday on Lifetime, is a spin-off of Miller’s other Lifetime show “Dance Moms.” The premise of “Dance Moms” is simple: some young girls dance for a competition team, their mothers hang out at the studio while their daughters have lessons, the moms gossip, argue and get on each other’s nerves. And then someone cries, someone else yells and they do it again the next episode. “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition” differs in two ways: it is an elimination show, and the moms are directly involved in their children’s potential success or failure in their challenges.

‘Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition’ is scheduled to air 9 p.m. Tuesdays on Lifetime. Eleven girls and one boy, ages 6 to 13, compete in groups and as individuals in a particular style (such as contemporary or hip-hop) with a skill challenge (such as technique or expression). Each week a child is eliminated by a panel of judges. The prize is $100,000 and a

scholarship to Joffrey Ballet School in New York. None of this is juicy. The judges are Robin Antin, Pussycat Dolls founder and choreographer, Richard “Richy”

[ a+e ] Band forgoes technology to focus on music, tour to C-Bus ALEX CASOLA Lantern reporter casola.3@osu.edu On the outside Blessed Feathers might appear to be your average two-man band, being that it’s put out an album and tours regularly. But when it’s at home in West Bend, Wis., the duo prefers kicking it old school, sharing a 10-year-old cellphone and bicycling to the local library to use the Internet. Blessed Feathers, along with Columbus-based tropical funk band Way Yes, is scheduled to perform at 10 p.m. Friday at the Rumba Cafe. Comprised of Donivan Berube and Jacquelyn Beaupre, the band even got its start in an old school way. The duo played its first show in a bookstore to a group of senior citizens who were having a poetry club meeting. Berube said the band has expanded its audience since its first “embarrassing” gig. “We’ve played like six billion shows since then and opened for people in Milwaukee, but this is our second time out of state,” Berube said. “Until summer, we’ve done nothing but home recording and went to New York for ‘Peaceful Beasts in an Ocean of Weeds.’” The band released its newest EP, “Peaceful Beasts in an Ocean of Weeds,” Tuesday and is

Abby from 4A Jackson, choreographer for stars such as Lady Gaga and, of course, Miller, choreographer of 32 years and founder of the Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh. The judges do their job and eliminate a dancer every week. None of this is worth watching, either. The mothers choose costumes, makeup and help with choreography between eliminations, making them directly involved in their children’s future on the show. This is the part that’s worth watching. As time goes on, the pressure on the dancers and mothers intensifies, and an inevitable explosion of a mom or two happens. And these blowups are what keep me from changing the channel. This week’s battle of the moms starred Kelly and Maria. Kelly’s daughter, Jordyn, 12, and Maria’s daughter, Lexine, 11, had a rough time during their hip-hop routine. Lexine starts with the tears as her mom says they should just

Blessed Feathers is scheduled to perform Oct. 12 at Rumba Cafe. planning to share the new material with Columbus Friday. Referring to the band’s music as “soul, acoustic, kind of rocky, kind of funky and all over the place,” Beaupre said the audience can expect a pretty mellow show consisting of some foot stomping and clapping.

She also said the band is looking forward to making a return to Columbus. It first made its way to the city more than two years ago, playing at Kafe Kerouac, located at 2250 N. High St. Blessed Feathers began when Berube moved to Wisconsin from Florida and began working at the same restaurant as Beaupre. She had been

recording songs even before the two met and shared her music with him to get some feedback. “When he gave (the tracks) back he had added drums and electric guitar, and that’s how we started,” Beaupre said. Dan Backhaus, the band’s manager who is also from West Bend, Wisc., said Blessed Feathers is determined to be a success. “I think they’re the hardest working kids I’ve ever met,” Backhaus said. “Bands are always asking what can we do to get better or known, and they need to spend more time making music.” Backhaus also said, with the exception of New York shows, the band booked its current tour on its own. He added that the band not being distracted with technology only intensifies its determination. “The Blessed Feathers aren’t distracted by what people are eating for lunch on Instagram, and they are just focused on their music and that is what I love about them,” Backhaus said. Beaupre seemed to agree with Backhaus and said the band plans to stick with neglecting the Internet. “We don’t need Internet ... It just sucks up people’s time,” Beaupre said. “We’re always creating and inventing.” Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Rumba Cafe, located at 2507 Summit St.

leave the competition, and Jordyn tries to talk to Lexine. Then Kelly gets upset with Maria for teaching her daughter that it’s OK to quit and go home. Maria says something unintelligible to Jordyn and Kelly blows her top. Kelly doesn’t even talk to her daughter that way, she says -How dare Maria speak to Jordyn that way! Maria and Lexine leave the room, with Kelly and Jordyn standing as the alpha females. Too bad for Maria and Lexine, as they didn’t actually leave the show. Tessa gets the boot, and Maria and Lexine are marked as vulnerable and dead weight for team competition. Who will be the star of the battle of the moms next week? Yvette, the dance teacher and perfectionist? Kristie, mom of the youngest contestant? “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition” is scheduled to air 9 p.m. Tuesdays on Lifetime.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Arabian Nightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to bring â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;power of storytellingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to OSU hailey kim Lantern reporter kim.3712@osu.edu

OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Theatre is scheduled to perform â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Arabian Nights,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; starring Jane Elliott as Scheherezade, and Adam Zarowski as King Shahryar, Oct. 11-21 in Ray Bowen Theatre at the Drake Performance and Event Center.

While mothers might tell stories to put their kids to sleep, in other instances, such as in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nights,â&#x20AC;? a woman uses storytelling to stay alive. Ohio Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Theatre is scheduled to perform â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nightsâ&#x20AC;? Thursday through Oct. 21 in the Ray Bowen Theatre at the Drake Performance and Event Center. The performance, which has a cast comprised of students in the Department of Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Master of Fine Arts program, is an adaptation of director Mary Zimmermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nights.â&#x20AC;? The play centers on King Shahryar, who marries a different girl every night just to kill them later. The cycle comes to a halt when Shahryar marries Scheherezade. In order to prolong her life, each night Scheherezade tells stories. She stops telling the king the story at its climax, so he remains interested and will have to let her live until the next day to hear the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better way to entertain a king than telling funny and sexy stories?â&#x20AC;? said Jane Elliott, who plays Scheherezade in the show. On a more serious note, she said â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nightsâ&#x20AC;? is more than a form of entertainment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is about the fundamental power of storytelling and the link between storytelling and humanity,â&#x20AC;? Elliott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) the idea that you can bring someone who is inhuman back from that brink through the power of storytelling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall, we are trying to convey to the audience not just, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, look at these cool stories,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but think about what these stories are doing and how they have the power to change us.â&#x20AC;? Adam Zarowski, who plays the role of Shahryar, said the storytelling process on stage wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be like a book-reading session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is like a cartoon. In the cartoon someone opens up a book and says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna tell you a story,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and as he starts to tell the story, the story came alive,â&#x20AC;? Zarowski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our play is very similar to that.â&#x20AC;?

Despite Zarowski comparing â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nightsâ&#x20AC;? to a cartoon, Elliott said people shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to get a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cartoons feel from the performance because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more erotic than that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of Scheherezadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest lines in the first act is, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing shameful in speaking of those things which live below our waist,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Elliot said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, we have some sexual stories and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy away from that. At the same time, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very funny.â&#x20AC;? This year, 10 new actors are enrolled in the MFA program, which is a three-year program, and seven of them work together in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nights,â&#x20AC;? which is the classâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first performance together. Zarowski said working on the project is exciting and challenging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like all of the new people here feel a certain amount of pressure to prove to people that they are worth it to bring in,â&#x20AC;? Zarowski said. Elliott said she was thrilled to work with her fellow actors and it was a special time for them. She added that the audience would also have a great time seeing the new classâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completed three years of training, but we also bring a lot of different things to the table, so I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be really exciting for the audience,â&#x20AC;? Elliott said. Hilary Horsman, a second-year in international studies and Korean, said the show sounds interesting because she believes in the power of storytelling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Storytelling is a great way to teach children and adults,â&#x20AC;? Horsman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can learn different ways of thinking and understand their lives by stories.â&#x20AC;? Isabella Vinicur, a first-year in exercise science education, said she thinks â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nightsâ&#x20AC;? will be very different compared to other plays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw how the stage was set up, because my theater class took a tour,â&#x20AC;? Vinicur said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really interesting, and based on the set that I (saw), I think the play will be unusual.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arabian Nightsâ&#x20AC;? are $20 for general public, $18 for OSU faculty, staff, alumni association members and senior citizens, and $15 for students and children.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been around in a long time and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve actually been surprised at the reaction that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten to the show,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But their fans seem to be coming out of the woodwork for it and we just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had them in a while, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a great show.â&#x20AC;? Madison Boyer, a second-year in linguistics, who is attending the show, said she is a long-time fan of the band because of Bemis and his lyrics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been listening to them for a really long time so part of it is a nostalgia factor and I also think that Max Bemis is just a fantastic writer,â&#x20AC;? Boyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important in songs when they really have meaning in the lyrics and I think Say Anything does a really good job of that.â&#x20AC;? Tom Shannon, a sales clerk at Used Kids Records, located at 1980 N. High St. said that while the store carries the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s album, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not very familiar with the band.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about the band, I would say that we do not do a lot sales-wise with that particular band,â&#x20AC;? Shannon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re much more of an underground, I know a lot of people would think that, that type of music is underground, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re even farther underground than that and the bands that we tend to sell here are very obscure.â&#x20AC;? Bemis is hoping to make people more familiar with the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music and for the audience to forget about their daily troubles at Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just hope that they can kind of lose themselves in the music,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And just are able to let go of whatever they deal with and just kind of unite and enjoy the music.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show are available at the Newport, located at 1722 N High St., for $16.50 in advance or $20 the day of the show.

‘Long way to go’ for Buckeyes to reach 7-0 DAN HOPE Senior Lantern reporter hope.46@osu.edu With two wins in their first five games, Indiana Hoosiers football has already doubled its win total from the 2011 season. This has Ohio State coach Urban Meyer “very concerned” about how his team will respond to playing the Hoosiers this Saturday, a road test at 8 p.m. in Bloomington, Ind. “(Indiana’s) a much better team (than last year),” Meyer said during a Monday news conference at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. “We’ve had two very emotional wins, two very physical wins (against Michigan State and Nebraska). There were a lot of sore bodies out there last night at practice.” The No. 8 Buckeyes have won their first six games of the season, but Meyer stressed that getting to 7-0 will not come easily. Meyer said his team is “not at the point where we can start overlooking anybody” during the Big Ten coaches’ teleconference Tuesday. “(Overlooking Indiana) is a concern,” Meyer said. “These kids are 6-0, a lot of people are telling them how good they are, and quite honestly we have a long way to go.” Meyer said that Indiana keeping the game close with Michigan State was “the best thing that could

happen,” because his players will be less likely to overlook their opponent. “When you go in there and face a team that didn’t play well, the good thing is they are getting better,” Meyer said at his Monday press conference. “Indiana has talent, a lot of talent at certain positions.” What particularly concerns Meyer is Indiana’s offense, which ranks 26th nationally in total offense with more than 471 yards per game, and 46th nationally in scoring offense with almost 33 points per game. “They throw the ball very well. They play an offense that you better have every ‘t’ crossed and ‘i’ dotted or they’re going to pop one on you,” Meyer said. “Offensively, that guy (Indiana coach Kevin Wilson) is a heck of a coach.” On the other side of the equation, Wilson said playing OSU is a “great challenge,” but that he expects his team to compete. “We’re going to play the Buckeyes every year, it’s a phenomenal program, it’s a tremendous challenge, but we need to build this program where we can compete … start being a winning team in this league and that’s what we’re trying to get going here,” Wilson said during the Tuesday teleconference. “A lot of work to do, trying to make progress, keep fighting through the shortcomings, but a lot of work to do and we’re going to keep working at it.”

Former OSU running back Daniel ‘Boom’ Herron shoves Texas cornerback Earl Thomas in the 2009 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 5, 2009. OSU lost, 24-21.

Ohio State football is scheduled to play a home-and-home series against Texas in 2022 and 2023, the athletic department announced Wednesday. “Playing a program like the University of Texas always creates remarkable experiences for our players and fans,” athletic director Gene Smith said in a released statement. “Our last series with the Longhorns contributed to the great history and tradition that Buckeye Nation enjoys.” The Buckeyes are 1-2 against the Longhorns, having only faced them three times in school history. OSU faced Texas in a home-andhome series in 2005, 2006 and, again, in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl. OSU is scheduled to travel to Austin on Sept. 17, 2022 and then host the Longhorns a little more than a year later on Sept. 16, 2023 in Ohio Stadium. The announcement of the series with the Longhorns comes a little more than a week after OSU’s agreement with another prominent Texan team. On Oct. 2, OSU announced that its football team is slated to play a home-and-home football series against Texas Christian University in 2018 and 2019. “Competing against programs from the state of Texas has always offered exciting experiences for our players and fans,” Smith said. “TCU continues to be one of the top football programs in the country.” 2018’s game is scheduled to be played Sept. 15 in Forth Worth, Texas while the 2019 contest is scheduled to be hosted on Sept. 21 at Ohio Stadium. OSU has played TCU six times in school history and is 4-1-1 against the Horned Frogs. The last time the two schools met was Sept. 29, 1973.

OSU Football: The Matchup OHIO STATE

No. 8

BUCKEYES

INDIANA

The air came out of the balloon in Ohio State football’s 2011 season with a too-close-for-comfort win against Indiana. The Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) will try to avoid another deflating performance against the Hoosiers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) Saturday in Bloomington, Ind. OSU’s signature victory of the 2011 season came on Oct. 29 against Wisconsin in a 33-29 victory at Ohio Stadium. The next week, though, OSU disappointed in its 34-20 win against an Indiana team the Buckeyes couldn’t put away until late in the game. Last season’s win against Indiana left OSU coaches and players spending postgame interviews explaining away their performance, proved to be a momentum buster — OSU lost four straight to close out the season.

Offense

OSU will put points on the board against Indiana, that much we know. The Buckeyes are 22nd in America with almost 39 points per game. At almost 250 yards per game, OSU is also the 10th-ranked rushing offense in the country. Leading OSU’s charge on the ground is sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller, who has 763 yards, eight touchdowns and an average of more than 127 yards per game. Miller also set a new single-game, OSU quarterback rushing record against Nebraska with 186 yards on the ground. Indiana’s offense racks up plenty of yards — the Hoosiers have the 26th-ranked total offense as they average just less than 472 yards per game and score almost 33 points per game. The Hoosiers defense has struggled at times, having allowed 41 points against Ball State on Sept. 15, 44 against Northwestern on Sept. 29 and 31 against Michigan State on Oct. 6. With that in mind, the Buckeyes’ offense could hang another big number on the scoreboard this weekend.

HOOSIERS

OSU is coming off what appears to have been the 2012 season’s signature win on Saturday, a 63-38 drubbing of visiting Nebraska. The kind of letdown OSU experienced against the Hoosiers in November 2011 seems unlikely to occur again this weekend, and the formidable OSU offense might be enough to do the Hoosiers in. The Buckeyes, ranked No. 8 in the Associated Press’ Top 25 poll, just posted their highest offensive output since a Sept. 21, 1996 game against Pittsburgh. OSU won that game, 72-0. The Buckeyes scored 73 points against Eastern Michigan during the 2010 season, which was later vacated. Can Indiana hang with the high-flying Buckeyes’ offensive attack, and what about the Hoosier defense? Decide for yourself after seeing how the teams match up.

Defense

OSU and Indiana’s respective defensive units have had trouble keeping teams out of the end zone in 2012, but the Buckeyes seem to be in a better position for success on Saturday considering recent success in some areas. The Buckeyes’ defense has demonstrated a propensity for making big plays and enter Saturday’s game with 13 takeaways on the year — OSU has 10 interceptions, three fumble recoveries and two turnovers returned for a touchdown (sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby has both touchdowns). Against Nebraska, OSU tallied four sacks and nine tackles for loss despite allowing the Cornhuskers to score 38 points in the game. The Hoosiers’ defense has forced opponents into five turnovers this season, including three interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Indiana is allowing 441 yards per game in 2012 and has allowed more touchdowns (17) than any other Big Ten Conference team.

Special Teams OSU junior receiver Corey Brown is coming into the matchup with Indiana with the hot special teams hands following his 76-yard punt return for a touchdown to put the game out of reach Saturday against Nebraska. For the season, OSU is averaging 12 yards per punt return, which is good enough for 33rd in America. Indiana’s punt return game doesn’t match OSU’s — the Hoosiers are averaging more than six yards per punt return. Kickoff returns are a different story — Indiana averages more than 28 yards per return in that category, and bests OSU’s nearly 20 yards per return. As far as kicking goes, OSU junior Drew Basil has connected on each field goal attempt this season, but he’s only attempted two. By contrast, Indiana redshirt junior kicker Mitch Ewald is 5-of-8 on field goal attempts. Ewald has also proven his ability from distance, connecting on 2-of-2 tried from 30-39 yards and hitting 1-of-3 tries from 40-49 yards.

Wilson said OSU sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller is “one of the best players in the game,” and that he hopes Miller is not at his best on Saturday night. “His ability, his competitiveness is what I like. When a game’s on the line he makes plays,” Wilson said. “They’re doing a great job offensively, he’s got some nice players around, the offensive line’s playing well, he’s got some nice pieces, but he’s the straw stirring the drink and he’s pretty good.” As for the Buckeyes defense, Indiana assistant offensive coordinator Kevin Johns said they are “fundamentally very sound.”

“They are very aggressive, they’re led by an outstanding pass rush, starting with (senior defensive end) John Simon,” Johns said during Indiana’s weekly press conference. “They do a tremendous job of keeping everything in front, playing their base technique, but they play extremely fast, they run through people. So it’s going to be a very good challenge for our offense, but one that I know our kids are excited for.” The Buckeyes have won 16 consecutive games against Indiana, not including its vacated win in 2010, and will be looking to extend a streak that has held up since their last loss to the Hoosiers in 1988.

OSU redshirt junior Peter Kobelt lunges for the ball during the semifinal round of the 2012 ITA All-American Championships Oct. 6. Kobelt finished 2nd overall in the singles competition.

Placing second at the 2012 ITA All-American Championships Sunday in Tulsa, Okla., Ohio State men’s tennis’ redshirt junior Peter Kobelt is more than pleased with his performance on the Case Tennis Center courts. “I was very happy with my performance, I beat five guys who are high on their respective team’s line-ups,” Kobelt said. “Being able to put five matches together like that and play that long in the tournament shows that I have been doing the right things over the summer training-wise and conditioning-wise. It was really nice to see.” The New Albany, Ohio, native won five matches, two of which were against top 10-ranked players. Kobelt fell in the singles finale to No. 6-seeded Alex Domijan of Virginia, 7-5, 6-1. Kobelt attributed his wins to his serving strengths and mobility. “I was serving at a very high percentage for serves and I was able to get around and hit a lot of forehands in the beginning to control the court,” Kobelt said. Coach Ty Tucker said he was impressed with Kobelt’s finish. “Obviously it was very strong, to finish No. 2 in the nation at that tournament is big,” Tucker said. “It’s the first time we have had a player finish in the individual All-American singles.” The redshirt junior also played in the doubles bracket beside senior Connor Smith, but the duo left Tulsa, Okla., without a doubles title after falling in the second round of competition. “We played OK, but we came up short, we played a tough team and it was bad weather,” Smith said. “It was only pro sets so it was tough, but we came out a bit slow.” In addition to finishing second in the nation this week, Kobelt is ranked as the No. 35 tennis player in the countrybut he said he was not sure of the ranking at first. “I had a general idea on where I would be from last season with the ongoing seniors that left,” Kobelt said. “I don’t know how comfortable I was, I had an OK season but I wasn’t too confident right from the beginning.” Tucker said Kobelt’s ranking has come as a result of the player utilizing his strengths as a player. “His biggest strengths are his serve and the fact that he is a junior now, but a redshirt junior, so it’s his fourth year and he knows what is expected of him,” Tucker said. “He knows what kind of game he has and what he needs to do.” Kobelt and the Buckeyes are scheduled to travel to East Lansing, Mich., on Oct. 18, to compete in the USTA/ITA Midwest Regional Championships.

sports OSU volleyball looks to ride momentum from Illini win daniel chi Asst. photo editor chi.55@osu.edu

Ohio State womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball senior outside hitter Emily Danksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first Big Ten opponent as a freshman was Illinois, and the Fighting Illini welcomed her to conference play with tough love in the form of stuffed blocks. She hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgotten that experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Illinois) was definitely a wake-up call that this is a really tough league,â&#x20AC;? Danks said of the freshmanyear match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just remember getting stuffed blocks over and over again as a little freshman, so it was so rewarding to finally be a senior and show that we can do this, we can beat Illinois.â&#x20AC;? Defeating Illinois, 3-2, on Friday was about more than just revenge, though. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost just more of a personal moral victory. We were kind of sick of losing to them three times, and we wanted to prove that we could come back and win. I think we did a really good job of that.â&#x20AC;? The Buckeyes rallied to win three straight games to climb out of a 0-2 hole and defeat the then-No. 21-ranked Illini on Saturday to improve to 13-5 on the year. OSU will look to ride that momentum into its two home matches this weekend against Indiana and Purdue. Defeating Illinois was something senior outside hitter Mari Hole said was gratifying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fun to finally be able to actually finish the game, especially since we were down, 2-0, which is always a hard thing to come back from,â&#x20AC;? Hole said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a team, we really fought our way back and everyone contributed one way or another.â&#x20AC;? Coach Geoff Carlston knows that the percentages of winning on the road, especially being down 2-0, let alone in the competitive Big Ten conference, are very slim. Carlston said he was proud of his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comeback against a team that has had the Buckeyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; number in recent history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really cool,â&#x20AC;? Carlston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard â&#x20AC;Ś when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down 0-2, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really low percentage of teams that come back to win, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even lower when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the road and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even lower on the road in the Big Ten. I was really proud of our group, how they responded in a hostile environment.â&#x20AC;? Carlston described the comeback victory against Illinois as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;breakthroughâ&#x20AC;? for his squad and said it should build their confidence for the rest of the season, adding that the seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; performance was â&#x20AC;&#x153;inspiring.â&#x20AC;?

OSU senior outside hitter Mari Hole spikes the ball in a Sept. 22 game against Nebraska. OSU lost, 3-1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great to see,â&#x20AC;? Carlston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really thought our seniors did an awesome job of being the face, being the eyes and the voice that the rest of the group needed to believe it. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it, if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing the right things at the right moment, than it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen.â&#x20AC;? So far into this season, the Buckeyes have found a common theme: resiliency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It says that we are a strong team and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not easily defeated,â&#x20AC;? Hole said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just shows that you can never just count us off, even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up 2-0. We will fight for every point.â&#x20AC;? After playing four consecutive Big Ten games on the road, the Buckeyes will try to use their resiliency to protect the home court against Indiana on Friday and No. 17 Purdue on Saturday at St. John Arena. Despite their 8-10 overall record , Carlston pointed out that Indiana is better than what their record shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play Indiana on Friday, and they almost beat Nebraska at Nebraska this past weekend,â&#x20AC;? Carlston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our focus is really on Indiana. I think they are an overlooked team; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty good.â&#x20AC;? Although Indiana has lost six consecutive games

in a row , Carlston once again emphasized that every team is dangerous in this conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just assume everyone is really good,â&#x20AC;? Carlston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last week is a great example that anyone in our conference can beat anyone and I think people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that, but they do now.â&#x20AC;? Indiana freshman setter Katie Gallagher, senior setter Whitney Granado and redshirt junior outside hitter Jordan Haverly have helped lead the Indiana team, which will try to control the pacing of the game against the Buckeyes. On Saturday, the Buckeyes will face Purdue, which has a 13-4 overall record. The Boilermakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lineup features one of the best players in the country in senior outside hitter Ariel Turner, who is the reigning Big Ten Player of the Year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turner is just smart,â&#x20AC;? Carlston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is maybe one of, if not the smartest kid in terms of her IQ and her ability to hit shots. She never hits the same shots twice; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to play against a kid that just really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a lot of mistakes. She is an impressive player, she really knows the game and is really difficult to defend.â&#x20AC;? Even though Purdue has lost two games in a row, Danks said her team needs to stay sharp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, we just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get complacent,â&#x20AC;? Danks

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Purdue is always a very talented and scrappy team.â&#x20AC;? OSU is looking forward to the challnege the 6-foot-1 Turner presents, Hole said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always fun to play against big players, but every player is going to get their kills, you just try to minimize them as much as possible,â&#x20AC;? Hole said. No matter what ranking or what record either team possesses, Carlston is expecting each team to be at its best this weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting both of these teams to come in and be ready to play for different reasons,â&#x20AC;? Carlston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indiana because they had a great weekend, showed that they can play at a high level. â&#x20AC;?Then Purdue, because I think, you know, they realize that they got to play a little better, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure coach (Dave) Shondell is pushing them hard in practice. So I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to find two hungry teams, but I think our team is really hungry too.â&#x20AC;? Eighteen games into the year, Carlston said that this team is continuing to get better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best thing about our group right now is that we have a lot of room for improvement,â&#x20AC;? Carlston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that, and we had a great week of practice so far. We will be ready as well.â&#x20AC;?
